“This Market was awesome!!”

Christmas and Medieval Market
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 December 2017

It was fun, lively, very medieval! We had a blast here. There is a stage and a short play began while we were there.. The performers played medieval characters and supposedly it was very funny because those peeps that understand German, were laughing hysterically. We really liked this market and its uniqueness. The location of the market is great too, in the middle of old beautiful architecture. The town of Esslingen is very beautiful with a walking trail up a hill is nearby where you get a great view of the marker.

Planning ourGerman Christmas trip was nerve wracking. We wanted to make sure we get the whole experience and don’t miss out. We opted for Stuttgart as it’s boastin the oldes and largest market and a added bonus the Esslingen medieval Christmas market and Ludwigsburg baroque markets are both a short train ride away.

Today we ventured to Esslingen and boy o boy we’re we delighted. Despite to light rain it was a joyful fun and wonderful experience. This market top the lot! Best spirit and atmosphere by far! Ludwigsburg had the best food though but this one was very special. The surroundings helps and it’s a dream!

Will return just to experience it all over again. Love love love!!!

This medieval market is just wonderful with different foods than many - we especially liked the pita filled with meat, cheese and paprika sauce. The stalls were of course interesting and the children’s area with a hand powered Ferris wheel and carousel just charming. This is a very special market!
